Kara Lapierre is Relyco’s Creative Director. She does our graphic design work, video shoots & editing, printer troubleshooting and so much more! To know Kara is to love her. She is kind to everyone. Seriously! Kara is one of the most empathetic, generous souls ever. She loves to travel and many of her trips are service/mission based.
To some, Kara’s sense of humor may be unexpected. Her kindness is certainly evident upon initial acquaintance, but once you know her better, it’s clear that under her sweet demeanor, hides an incredibly silly and playful side. She delights in the ridiculous. Kara’s giggle kind of bursts out of her and there are times when she actually looks surprised at herself for laughing, but she keeps laughing harder anyways, which gets everyone going.
It was a little tricky to get her to talk about herself for this Get to Know Relyco Series interview, but we went for it anyways! Kara is very modest, which makes her all the more endearing. Here she is in her own words:
